Violent crime takes a rare day off in New York
No one shot, stabbed or subjected to violent attack for the first day in living memory in New York City
New York City achieved a rarity on Monday – for 24 hours there was not a single report of a person being shot, stabbed or subjected to violent crime, police have revealed.
New York police department chief spokesman Paul Browne said it was “first time in memory” that the city’s police force had experienced such a peaceful 24 hours.
It comes at the end of year when the city is on target to have its lowest murder rate since 1960.
